In the process (now completed) of creating a pull out shelf storage box as can be seen elsewhere in this forum. Did all the dimensions in Photoshop. Already have all the supplies, just have to put it together tomorrow (also done now).
Found the diamond plate sheets at a local metal shop. 1/16" thick. Going to frame it around the actual box which will be made out of 8x4' sheets of MDF wood (I know it's not the best, but it was the cheapest for what I needed). How I was able to fit those sheets of wood in the back of my jeep and drive it home with a burnt out clutch is beyond me, but I did.
If anyone wants to take this up as well and wants access to the Photoshop file I created, just PM me with your email address. It has all the dimensions that will fit in the back of the yj, at least my 95 yj but I assume all yj trunk areas are the same?
I've layered the PS file by drawer and frame as well as a top and side view. The dimensions are to scale so you can see if something won't fit or whatnot. You can't see all the layers in the images below, but it is very detailed with each piece of wood in there. The red outlines are the 1/16" thick Diamond Plate sheets I'll be bolting around the box. Everything is accurate to 1/16".
I'll post pics tomorrow (hopefully) when I have it all together and completed.
Here are the dimensions of the different pieces of wood I'll be cutting from the sheets tomorrow:
1 Drawer bottom: 36 11/16" x 31 3/8" @ 3/4
2 Drawer Sides: 36 11/16" x 6 3/4" @ 3/4 or 1/2
2 Drawer Front/Back: 29 7/8" x 6 3/4 @ 3/4 or 1/2
1 Drawer Front Face: 33 7/8" x 8 1/4" @ 1/4
2 Bottom/Top: 38" x 33 7/8" @ 3/4
2 Sides: 38" x 7 1/2" @ 3/4
1 Back: 32 3/8" x 7 1/2" @ 3/4
What's the code on here to resize images? The BBcode I use doesn't seem to be working.
Just for fun:
I had to make some adjustments to these dimensions as I was building it. I didn't account for the lock module on the door to go in as far as it does when the trunk door is shut so it pushed the whole box back a couple inches. Now the back of the box is not flush with where the trunk drops off to the front seat area. Hangs over a couple inches, no biggie. If you want it flush, you might want to cut back the 38" to about 36" or so. I'm not sure of the exact measurement, just grab a tape measure and measure from the front to the drop off. Make sure it will clear that lock bracket and the brake light sensor bracket on either side of the trunk door when it is shut.
I also trimmed back the drawer bottom, front, and back pieces about another half an inch to allow more room for drawer slides if I want to install them in the future. I originally was planning to have the drawer flush with the top of the frame, but it was kind of a tight squeeze, so the front/back and sides were all trimmed from 6 3/4 to 6 1/4. That leaves half an inch of movement space from the top of the frame.
